Structures in the dashboard represented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger.
One of the ISOFIX anchorages broke during the side impact test and the dummy's head was not contained within the restraint, making it vulnerable to contact with parts of the car's interior. Nissan has identified and corrected the manufacturing fault and is contacting owners of affected cars to replace the rear seat-frame. In the frontal impact, the chest of the 1½ year old dummy was subjected to high vertical accelerations. The passenger airbag could be deactivated to allow rear-facing childseats to be used in the front passenger seat. However, information regarding the status of the airbag was not sufficiently clear to meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not sufficiently prominently marked.
The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offered to the legs of pedestrians.
